Ho Ho Ho

Meeting Santa this year didn't go as smoothly as last year.

She was all dressed up...

She was checking it all out...
And then it all went down hill...

Merry Christmas!

Play date with Cora and Avery

Aunt Kristen and Uncle Dave went Christmas shopping and therefore Emma hosted a pancake breakfast and a play date!

I had so much fun watching them interact and play school!

My Almost 2 Year Old

I can't believe my little Emma is almost 23 months old. She makes me laugh everyday with her new words, her new songs, and her curious appraoch to life.

Here are her 23 month photos from our living room.

Meet Elfie

Thank you to Mumsy for introducing a new holiday tradition into the Oesch household. The day after Thanksgiving Emma got a surpirse visit from her very own Elf on a Shelf...Elfie. She actually sat still for the entire movie and was so excited when her Elfie appeared!

She doesn't quite understand the idea that touching Elfie makes his magic disappear...maybe next year!

Be Thankful

Here are some great photos of Emma and her girl cousins Thanksgiving afternoon. Emma was in heaven with the attention from Cora and Avery and all the new toys to explore.

Anabelle and Uncle Rett

California Girls

We took a girls trip! We had so much fun and we recharged our batteries! Emma had many new firsts.

Here we are at the airport. I won't bore you with the horrendous details of the flight out there, but let's just say one flight cancelled and about 7 hours behind schedule we arrived after a three legged flight.


grabbing a quick bite since our plane was cancelled
But we arrived to this beautiful scenery.

even captured the moon

enjoying the view from the balcony

looking down towards Laguna Beach

the property

the clouds rolled in and sat right on top of the water

Emma enjoyed exploring the grounds of the hotel, especially the koi pond.

this is the exact spot where they get fed from...they were hungry!

shovel in hand...ready for the beach

Emma absolutely loved the beach...she loved the cold water on her toes, she loved the warm sun and she loved playing in the sand with Mumsy.
fell asleep on the walk down to Crystal Cove

eating at the Beachcomer

on the Crystal Cove Beach...this is where Beaches was filmed

love that her fingers are spread apart as she feels the sand for the first time on her feet

getting the piggies wet in the Pacific

at Dana Point...basically had the beach to ourselves



Check out this gorgeous sunset in Laguna Beach before we ate dinner at the Beach House.


Mumsy and Emma

Mommy and Emma

sun setting over Catalina Island

look at the palm glisten

the hills of Laguna

love this

postcard perfect
 We also went to the tide pools in Corona del Mar for the sunset and more fun in the sand!
wish this was my view every night!

We had lunch and walked Newport Beach Pier

watching the waves come in

Pool time!

the pool was a salt water pool...she was surprised when she took this drink!
 and here are some other miscellaneous photos from the week

we did lots of outside playing

 What a great week and even better memories!
